Dabchick & chick. Only one chick at the moment but the adult’s partner seems to be stuck on a nest.
After being driven off their previous nest by coots the dabchicks are back in Victoria Park. Yesterday we saw a change over at the nest and perhaps an egg.
Note the dried bramble(?) right in front designed to confuse my auto focus.
A couple of the coot nests on the park pond had chicks, spent a while sitting in the sun watching the parents feed and protect on one. Few more photos on Flickr.
First Hawthorn 2021 for me. Hallelujah
